Vogue Knitting Live – New York has come and gone and here are some of my favorite moments from the weekend.
Just a few steps past registration and we’ve had our first celebrity sighting—Arne & Carlos! L-R: Carlos Zachrison, me, Lark assistant editor Deborah Stack, and Arne Nerjordet.
My first purchase at Vogue Knitting live is unfailingly from Jill Draper Makes Stuff. Jill can always spot me a mile away in a bright green sweater, although surprisingly I walked away with a sweater quantity of her Windham yarn in a lovely dove grey color called Mourning Dove. I think I have shocked Jill for daring to leap outside of my green safety net.
The most satisfying moment of the weekend was delivering the very first copy of More Lovely Knitted Lace (publishes on April 5th and you can preorder your copy here) to our author Brooke Nico. My camera didn’t capture it, but moments before she was jumping for joy! Fans will remember her first book Lovely Knitted Lace.
Drive-by yarning. I loved seeing so many wonderful gradient options in the marketplace and this set is from Ewetopia.
Marsha of One Geek to Craft Them All combines the best elements of geekdom with fiber necessities. Are you a Whovian in need of a tiny notion bag? She has what you need.
The Lexicorp Superkits are on my to buy/to make list!
We stopped by Nicky Epstein’s table to see the newest dolls and accessories from Enchanted Knits for Dolls. Here is Ms. Epstein with Lark assistant editor, Deborah Stack.
No night is complete without a little knitterly competition. In celebration of Carol Sulcoski’s new book Knitting Ephemera , Vogue Knitting Live hosted a Knitting Trivia Night/Cocktail Reception. From L to R are: co-host Chris Vaccari of Sterling Publishing, Maria Novilla of the Subway Knits podcast, designer Lily Chin, Cynthia – round 1 fan winner obscured behind Lily Chin, designer Amy Detjen, designer Franklin Habit, and co-host and author of Sock Yarn Studio , Lace Yarn Studio, and Knitting Ephemera, Carol Sulcoski.
Winner Franklin Habit accepts the knitting needle tiara and scepter of stockinette for being a font of knitterly knowledge!
Thanks for the fun photo booth, Lion Brand!
Until next year VKL! We’ll keep warm in our handknits in the meantime.
